CELEBRATION, Florida (February 28, 2013) – The newest ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet, the Disney Fantasy, earned the top honor – Best Large Ship – in the Cruise Critic 2013 Cruisers’ Choice Awards, announced this week.
The Disney Fantasy also received the top spots in four other categories – Large Ship Best Cabins, Best Entertainment, Best Public Rooms and Best Service. The Disney Dream was first for Best Shore Excursions. Winners were selected based on reviews submitted by cruisers for sailings taken in 2012.
“Our crew members strive to deliver a vacation experience unlike anything else at sea, and this latest recognition speaks directly to their dedication and attentive service,” said Karl L. Holz, president of Disney Cruise Line. “It’s also true that the Disney Fantasy itself, like the other ships in our fleet, has a magical way of surprising and delighting our guests.”
Now with four ships in the fleet, families can sail to more destinations with Disney than ever before. The Disney Magic, currently sailing from Galveston, Texas, offers four-night Caribbean getaway cruises, six-night Western Caribbean sailings and eight-night itineraries that travel to Walt Disney World Resort and Disney’s private island in the Bahamas, Castaway Cay. This summer, the ship returns to Europe with four-, seven- and 12-night sailings from Barcelona with first-ever stops in Venice, Italy, Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, Ephesus, Turkey and the Greek Isles. The Disney Wonder is now sailing four-night Bahamian and five-night Western Caribbean cruises from Miami, Florida and returns to Vancouver for seven-night itineraries to Alaska this summer. The Disney Dream is sailing three- and four-night Bahamian cruises, while the Disney Fantasy is sailing seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises, with both ships departing from Port Canaveral, Florida.
